Announcing: The Legend Project!


After MacGyver ended, the next tv series that Richard Dean Anderson took part in was Legend, a show which he has said was his favorite of all. I missed it when it originally aired, and it was never available for viewing on DVD....until now!

The series run lasted one season of twelve episodes, and a quick check of the IMDB full cast reveals a ton of familiar names to MacGyver fans, including the main supporting actor John de Lancie from The Escape, producer Mike Greenburg, and composer Ken Harrison.

I just got my DVD in the mail, and my plan is to watch about one episode per week (with my first post being in two weeks).  Since you know I love to rank things, I will rank each episode as I watch it and will keep track on this page (and will add your rankings too if you want to play along). I also hope to bring a few interviews with actors, writers, and producers to get some of the inside story.

I'm really looking forward to getting started on this (especially since the show is completely new to me), and I hope that you'll enjoy it too!

  1. Great stuff! I've ordered mine too but it'll take longer to ship to the UK so am not expecting it until the end of the month. Looking forward to watching, reading your reviews and adding my own comments. It'll be fun to watch the series especially as RDA has always said it was his favourite role. Apart from watching one poor-picture-quality episode on You Tube, its new to me too.(I decided not to watch any more as it might spoil the experience in case he DVD ever came out ......and here it is!)

  2. One episode a week sounds like a workable pace. Hope we all enjoy the series.

    2. I didn't get UPN back in 1995 but a librarian's aide at my high school taped a handful of them for me so I watched a few episodes.
